Police were called to the 7-Eleven store, Nanai Rd Branch 3, at 2:10am on Thursday (Jan 7), Patong Police explained in a report released today (Jan 9).

Police arrived to be told by staff at the store that a man about 150-160cm tall wearing a blue-red jacket and blue jeans had entered the store and used a knife to threaten a staffer to hand over whatever money they had.

The staffer opened the cash register and handed over B1,060. The man took the money and fled on a motorbike.

Through footage from CCTV cameras throughout the town, Patong Police saw the man had fled down Nanai Soi 1. The officers eventually tracked the robber to a house on Petchkut Rd, Patong, where they moved in and arrested 24-year-old Patiphan Chaiyothin at 8:30pm last night (Jan 8).
